Delacour, Fleur: rosewood, 9 1/2 ", inflexible, veela hair (GF18)
The hair in Fleur's wand was from her grandmother, who was a veela.

Diggory, Cedric: pleasantly springy, 12 1/4", single hair from the tail of a particularly fine male unicorn
See note below on Cedric's wand core. Cedric, who is friendly and unassuming, carries a wand which is described as "pleasant."

Dumbledore, Albus: see Elder Wand

Granger, Hermione: vine wood, dragon heartstring
Rowling chose vine wood (JKR) for Hermione because it is the wood associated with her birthday in Celtic lore.

Grindelwald, Gellert: see Wand of Destiny

Hagrid, Rubeus: oak, 16", rather bendy
The oak tree is considered to be the "king of the forest," according to British lore. It is known for its strength. (JKR)

Krum, Viktor: hornbeam, 10 1/4", quite rigid, dragon heartstring
Krum's wand was made by Gregorovitch, not Mr. Ollivander. Krum's stiff, gruff manner is reflected in his wand being "quite rigid."

Lestrange, Bellatrix Black: walnut, 12 3/4", unyielding, dragon heartstring
Taken from her by Ron Weasley at Malfoy Manor, who Disarmed her using Wormtail's wand. Since Mr. Ollivander identified it so precisely, it seems likely that he originally made the wand (DH23, DH24).

Longbottom, Neville's wands:
first one (obtained prior to September 1991 [Y11], broken June 1996 [Y16])
new one (July 1996 [Y16]) cherry, unicorn tail hair
Neville's original wand was his father's old wand and meant a great deal to his grandmother Augusta (his father's mother). This wand was broken by Antonin Dolohov during the battle of the Department of Mysteries in June 1996 [Y16].

Malfoy, Draco: hawthorn, 10", reasonably springy, unicorn tail hair
Taken from him by Harry Potter (DH23, DH24).

Malfoy, Lucius: elm, dragon heartstring
Taken from him by Voldemort (DH1).

Malfoy, Narcissa Black: unknown
Taken from her by Dobby at Malfoy Manor shortly before the latter's death (DH23).

Pettigrew, Peter: chestnut, 9 1/4", brittle, dragon heartstring
Made for him by Mr. Ollivander (who was forced to do so) and in the end taken from him by Ron Weasley by main force rather than by magic (DH23, DH24).

Potter, Harry: holly, 11", supple, single phoenix tail feather (from Fawkes)
According to European tradition, the holly tree repels evil. The name "holly" is derived from the word "holy." (JKR)

Potter, James: mahoghany, 11", pliable (excellent for transfiguration)
It makes sense that a wand good for transfiguration would be "pliable," which means that it can be molded and shaped.

Potter, Lily Evans: willow, 10 1/4", swishy (nice wand for charm work, according to Mr. Ollivander) (PS5)

Riddle, Tom Marvolo (Voldemort): yew, 13 1/2", single phoenix tail feather (from Fawkes)
Harry's and Voldemort's wands are "brothers" because they have cores of not only the same substance but from exactly the same source. When they are forced to fight each other, the Priori Incantatem effect is produced. Yew trees are known for their long lives. They symbolize death, but also resurrection. (JKR)

Umbridge, Dolores' wand
While not identified specifically, Umbridge's wand was described as "unusually short." Umbridge herself is unusually short, and perhaps her wand's characterisitcs suggest that her magical ability comes up wanting as well. We never do see her perform any particularly effective magic spells, after all.

Weasley, Ron's wands:
first one (obtained August 1991 [Y11], broken 1st September 1992 [Y12]): ash
new one (31st August, 1993 [Y13]): willow, 14", unicorn tail hair (PA3)
Ron's original wand was a hand-me-down from his older brother Charlie. It was made of ash (see note). This wand broke when the flying Ford Anglia crashed into the Whomping Willow on the 1st of September, 1996 [Y12]. See also entry for Pettigrew, Peter.
